Restore the Name "Glenn March Field" to Riverdale's Ballfield! Build a Memorial! Remember and Preserve Falcon Heritage & History!
On Saturday May 4, 1985, the Riverdale High School Baseball Field was named “GLENN MARCH FIELD,” in honor of Glenn March. Glenn was the driving force in uniting the school district by bringing baseball to Riverdale, rather than playing in the individual local communities, and in both the creating and upkeep of the original field. He was also instrumental in building the current bleachers at the D Ray Baum Field. These were just a few of the many things Glenn did in his lifetime for the Falcons, so many things that he was dubbed "Riverdale's Greatest Fan."
When the current high school was built, the history of the baseball field and the legacy of Glenn was lost. Family, friends, and alumni had understood that the name would be kept, and a memorial built similar to the one for D. Ray Baum Field.
We, the undersigned, want to make this happen. Please help us return the baseball field to its true name, "Glenn March Field" and have the memorial built. This petition will be presented to the Riverdale Board of Education by Glenn's children, Lynn March and Merrilee McClaskey, and by any alumni and friends who would like to be present to support them.
Let’s Preserve and Remember Our Falcon Heritage! Put the name of the field back up, and create the memorial!
